Sitting just 50 metres from the Blue Flag beach of Santa Maria del Focallo, this contemporary villa has dreamy getaway written all over it. Having recently been renovated, the interior is sleek and bright with every modern comfort you need for your stay. But it’s the outdoor area that embraces the laidback lifestyle of Sicily, where you can succumb to dolce far niente – the sweetness of doing nothing. Paved stones lead you to the pristine pool, passing by the enchanting old-growth tree, where you can spend hours soaking up the sun, catching up on your current read, and occasionally taking a dip to cool off. The high wall encircling the garden promises peace and privacy, only adding to the bliss of this whitewashed villa. We imagine you’ll want to spend as much time as possible savouring the heat and fresh air, so your lovely outdoor kitchen, complete with a gas hob, will certainly come in handy. Shrouded with traditional touches, there’s a certain charm that isn’t so apparent in other recently renovated villas – it’s truly the best of both worlds. Make use of the fresh local produce and try your hand at a Sicilian dish to be enjoyed alfresco. Then, settle into the sofa set beneath the straw pergola, sipping on a digestivo, while the solar-powered lights twinkle to life. If you get itchy feet, the ancient town of Pozzallo is just a short drive away. Soak in the culture of the 15th-century watch tower, take a walk along the glittering seafront, and explore the shops, bars, and restaurants that make up this small but charming and historically important place.
